Billy Frazer is heading stateside having been confirmed to race for Exclusive Autosport in the 2021 USF2000 series.

The reigning national Formula Ford champion made the step up to the Castrol Toyota Racing Series this year, earning his maiden podium finish last round at Hampton Downs.

His time in the United States will be Frazer’s first major international single-seater competition. It puts him on the Road to Indy programme, with the end goal being a drive in the NTT IndyCar Series.

He becomes the first Kiwi to be on the USF2000 field since Hunter McElrea in 2019.

“I am super excited to have teamed up with Michael Duncalfe and the Exclusive Autosport operation for this year’s USF2000 series,” Frazer said.

“I am really looking forward to the challenge of racing a different car on different tracks in a new country.
